I just wanted to know how the devs will engage community throughout the Age of Empires IV development.
As Adam Isegreen said before, community is a very important pillar to them, and since we are pretty far from a release date, and i’m quite sure there won’t be a big beta of the game (they had been working already with an small community group for over a year) i was wondering about the rest of us that won’t be so lucky to put their hands on the game how can we know if we are actually being heard aswell.
I’ve seen plenty of ideas and suggestions here and there. I know everybody at Relic’s and Microsoft aswell are really bussy, but it would be nice if Devs respond from time to time, to at least let us know that they read or at least know about our concerns of the game.
The fact that we don’t actually be able to play the game doesn’t mean that we cannot help either in other ways!
The trailer was really short, but was enough for the community to scream clear and loud about their concerns with the saturarion and colours.
Maybe we won’t be able to get our hands in the game before it’s release. But delivering a vídeo from time to time showing us the game can also be a good way to get some feedback from the community without having to make a huge beta for it.
I know Microsoft has been conservative about showing Age IV but you might want to think, at least a bit, what i have proposed.
